The Journey is all a Pursuit to the Destination

“You never know where the day will take you. The path is different, the journey is all a pursuit to the destination.#teamgetthere” ~~YoTrip

Each day comes to us wrapped in a package that says, “Open if you seek to take the journey in pursuit to the destination.” The wraping on the package is different each day because every day is different in what it has to offer those that diligently seek to take the journey in pursuit of the destination. Too often we formulate in our minds what we want from the day, how we want the day, when we will do things in the day, where we will do things in the day, why we will do things in the day, and how we will do things in the day. As we find ourselves chasing those 24 hours away, we have to focus on the path, on the journey, and pursuit to the destination.

In 1975 the musical icon, Diana Ross sang a song, “Do You Know Where You Are Going To”  the theme song from the movie Mahogany in which Ross  starred opposite, the debonaire Billy Dee Williams. The lyrics in the first stanza of this song are a series of pointed questions about a journey. In life, our journey is full of  questions that we are in constantly trying to find the answers. As long as we stay on the path, we are destined to go places. Some places will lead us to things we do not fully understand and other places we give us a greater understanding of things in our mist, there is a lesson to be learned in all of the journey’s we pursuit to reach our destination.

On a day when we  have the best made plans we can be taken in another direction, so we must be open to moving forward, to keep moving along. All to often things workout better than we plan, because we choose to grab hold of the journey and pursue the destination set before us. Decide to take the plunge and find path that leads to the journey, then begin to ask yourself the questions and feel free to go forth and find the answers. Remember, the journey is all a pursuit to the destination.

Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is
showing you?
Where are you going to? do you know?
Do you get what you’re
hoping for?
When you look behind you there’s no open door
What are you
hoping for?
Do you know?

Once we were standing still in
time
Chasing the fantasies that filled our minds
You knew i loved you, but
my spirit was free
Laughing at the question that you once ask me

Do
you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing
you?
Where are you going to? do you know?

Now, looking back in all we
pass
We’ve let so many dreams just slip through our hands
Why must we wait
so long before we see
How sad the answers to those questions can
be?

Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that
life is showing you?
Where are you going to? do you know?
Do you get what
you’re hoping for?
When you look behind you there’s no open door
What are
you hoping for? do you know?
